Padres 1B Yonder Alonso returns from DL with a three-hit night
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:17 am ET) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso made an immediate impact following his return from a trip to the disabled list on Tuesday. Alonso, who had been out since May 7 with a should injury, went 3 for 4 and scored twice in his team's 7-2 win over the Mets.

"I tried to take what they give me, focus pitch to pitch," Alonso said, per MLB.com. "Early in my career, I tried to do too much. I've learned from that. As long as I have good at-bats and swing at strikes, hopefully good things will happen."

Tuesday was Alonso's fifth three-hit performance of the season, as he upped his batting average to .352 on the season. 

"With Yonder, he's at his best when he's using the whole field," manager Bud Black said. "We need him to continue to do this. Someone asked me today if he can be a spark. I said, 'If he plays well.' So, yes, he can be a spark."

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:57 am ET) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez is being held out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's clash with the Cardinals. Ramirez has really struggled at the plate, collecting just two hits in his last 11 games.
